Centennial parents and students:
This is an important message with regards to our school schedule next week. As you may or may not know, teachers will be initiating Job Action next week, by refraining from conducting administrative work. Without going into all the details and the specifics of the actions, we have had to make few changes to the way we follow through on start up administrative procedures.
The schedule for next week remains unchanged. Students will report to homeroom at the times indicated in the mail out and on the website. At some point during the homeroom on Tuesday, teachers will escort their classes to the blue gym, where the bulk of work, like fee collection, timetable distribution, collection of forms etc will be performed by administrators, some support staff and management. Students are required to report to the homerooms on Wednesday and Thursday to verify attendance and enrolment – this is very important – and to get some necessary information on student safety and conduct. During these times, we will also continue to complete administrative duties for those students who require more time.
We ask you and your family to be patient as we undergo this process. Students may be waiting a little longer than they normally do, but I know that they will conduct themselves with the respect and grace we have come to expect from our students over the years, and which we expect as we start a new year.
We will have a good year, and our school will take care of your kids. Please refer to the school website for updates on information. In the next few weeks, I am sure that we will be sending more information home with regards to how the rest of the year will progress. As a result, please be sure to update all phone numbers and email addresses on the student verification forms sent home in the mail out.
Please do not hesitate to call or mail for more information.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
